Nominations for the Kathryn Smith Matkov Award

Dear FBA-Chicago Chapter Members:

The FBA Chicago Chapter is seeking nominations for candidates for the Kathryn Smith Matkov Award. The chapter bestows the award to an attorney or judge who has demonstrated a commitment to excellence and accuracy in defining, illuminating and informing the public on issues critical to American society, particularly relating to under-represented individuals such as children, the aged and minorities.

This award is given in the name of Chicago Past President Kathryn Smith Matkov, who passed away at a young age. The award recognizes her commitment to improving conditions for such individuals.

We need your help to identify nominees. Please send nominations of potential candidates for this award to our chapter at by the close of business Wednesday, March 3, 2023.
Notice: The deadline has been extended to Friday, March 31, 2023.

Your nomination should include a one-page description of why you believe that individual qualifies for the award and should provide contact information for that individual.
With gratitude for your assistance,

FBA-Chicago Chapter Awards Committee
